HEALTHY GROWTH IN THE BANKING SECTOR
 
 
ISSUE # 44 & 45-----Oct 31 - Nov 13, 2005

The ongoing financial sector reforms, along with favourable macroeconomic conditions, have led to significant changes in the size, structure and performance of the financial sector during 2004. One of the most striking features was the shift in the ownership structure from the public to private sector. It is a significant development because for the first time, since the nationalization in 1974, the private sector institutions have attained such a dominant share. The changes in the ownership structure reflect the government's efforts to promote the role of the private sector in the economy.

Pakistan government must make an appeal to EU for reviewing and making flexible GSP Plus Scheme and allow Pakistan to avail zero rated duty on exports of value added textiles to European countries. This will make country have a consolation of meeting some of its own to re-build devastated mountainous regions.
In the wake of this tragedy the media played a highly important role in creating awareness among the local as well as international community that drew prompt flow of rescue and relief aid.
